Drug charges in Pennsylvania
Getting busted on drug charges can affect you for the rest of your life. While parts of the country have become more lenient on laws against marijuana, Pennsylvania remains unprogressive with the drug and comes down hard on people caught with other types of drugs as well. If you have been arrested for the manufacturing or cultivation, possession, or distribution of an unlawful substance in PA, you can expect to face serious consequences. In order to avoid the detriment of some, if not all, of these consequences, call drug charges attorney Gary E. Gerson and confidentially speak to a qualified intake specialist about the details of your case. Contingent upon how much and what type of illegal drugs with which you are arrested, several entities—such as the Drug Task Force or Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation (BNI)—can be called by prosecutors to dig deeper into the history the drugs you possess and can use that investigation to attempt to prove that you were part of a much larger criminal drug ring. Attorney Gary Gerson will be there to negate the inferences made about you and your role in a much bigger conspiracy, as well as to alleviate the penalties of your mistakes. He may even be able to entirely prevent a conviction of any kind. There are three important things to remember when considering your possible conviction. You should know whether your drug crimes are classified as felonies or misdemeanors. You should be made aware of whether there are mitigating or aggravating circumstances surrounding your case. And you should know whether or not you have a prior criminal record, especially with drug crimes, that would play a large part in the severity of your sentence if you are convicted. If you have been arrested for drug charges, call Pittsburgh defense lawyer Gary E. Gerson to talk about what you can do to save yourself from a discouraging drug crimes conviction.
